FYI,Rachel Farrell posted to Massbird a report of an American Pelican being seen on December 19th in Swansea MA on Merrimans Pond. I assume we had the same bird in Westport today for the Westport CBC.

>> Concerning the vagaries of Christmas Counting: there has been a Cassin's Kingbird in Fort Tilden, Brooklyn, for weeks and weeks. It has been recorded almost every day (including Thursday or Friday) and survived some very nasty weather. And though it was staked out assiduously, the bird was not seen on Count Day yesterday. Birds are mysterious; and they have wings, and who knows what they'll do. Like the White Pelican that Tina Green just reported from Westport, presumably while Christmas Counting. Amazing...?
